Students at Youngstown State University are casting ballots this week on whether to impose a new fee in exchange for increased access to healthcare on campus.

The $34-a-semester fee was proposed by university officials to the university's Student Government Association earlier this year. It voted in February to include the initiative on its April election ballot.

A Youngstown State University student group focused on city revitalization is doing its part to make downtown safer for pedestrians. The group, YSUscape, has installed what it calls “Crosswalk Buckets,” which hold brightly colored flags that pedestrians can wave while crossing the street.

Michael Hripko, the group’s faculty adviser, says he hopes the project benefits both students and residents in the downtown community.
